What a waste…packaging, etc… talk to Blockbuster rent one, and then return it.  I might have to start downloading my movies.

what a waste of money!!! why would someone go buy a selt destructing dvd when u can go rent one . now with their no late policy u could keep the rented DVD for even say 72 hours vs the 48 hour with the “self destructing” dvd

waste of time and money!!!

Hmm, I have a sealed glove box.  Put the player in it, fill with argon gas and play the disc forever?  It has an airlock so I could change disks.  Only a minor inconvenience ...

THE WHOLE WORLD WANTS TO GO GREEN GREEN GREEN AND STAPLES WANT TO INVEST TIME AND MONEY IN THIS ??? I THINK WE SHOULD ALL BOYCOTT STAPLES UNTIL THEY BECOME WORLD FREINDLY

worst
idea
ever

Seriously Beullar? Are you kidding me? People have already mentioned the environmental concerns but, even if “green” wasn’t in fashion at the moment this idea would tank faster than you can say “mini-disc” or “DIVX’

Your mission, should you decide to accept it, is to avoid Staples stupid technology and find those responsible for this.

Can you just imagine how many people will buy these having no comprehension that they self destruct and thus how many support calls, tirades etc Staples will have to deal with.

They will no doubt get what they deserve from this.

Well, if they charged 99 cents, it might not be such a bad idea.  I can buy DVD’s at Wal*Mart for $5 to $6 which is about all they are worth.

This is a terrible idea, anyone remember Divix?  Why would I pay for a disposable disk when I can rent/buy or download?
